Where else can you enjoy the view from the world famous nightclub PURE overlooking the Las Vegas Strip and rub shoulders with many celebrity chefs including Bobby Flay, Cat Cora, Kerry Simon, Rick Moonen and enjoy wine, beer, specialty cocktails and passed hors d’oeuvres ? The answer is Bon Appetit's Vegas Uncork'd !
In 2008 Las Vegas became the fourth city to be profiled by the authors of the Michelin Guide , the very prestigious restaurant guide book to the world. This year, the 2009 guide features 140 restaurants and 32 hotels. Bon Appetit Magazine declared Las Vegas one of the top 5 restaurant cities.
In 2009, two Las Vegas restaurants were awarded with a five-star rating by the Mobil Travel guide . Alex at the Wynn resort and Joel Robuchon at the MGM Grand. Other award winning restaurants such as Bellagio's Le Cirgue ( 6th consecutive year ) and Picasso ( 8th consecutive year ) and Caesars Palace's Guy Savoy have all taken their place amongst the worlds best.
Vegas Uncork'd shows off Las Vegas's more than a decade climb as one of the top centers for fine dining in the world. This trend shows no sign of stopping with more premiere Chefs and guests coming to Las Vegas to sample the best the world has to offer.
Bon Appetit , with it's 3rd Vegas Uncork'd has taken its place as one of the premiere Culinary events in the world and grown into an event that sets a very high bar. We can only look forward to the 4th Bon Appetit Vegas Uncorked as we have no doubt the bar will be raised even higher
From the cut of Chef Guy Savoy' s knife to open the first bottle of Champagne to the last sip of Champagne with Chef Megan Romano's confections , The 3rd Vegas Uncorked will be remembered for a long time.
Congratulations Bon Appetit and all of the people who put this premier event together. Cheers ! , and we look forward to see you all again next May !
